Wizkids Update

Some Dice Stars, Heroclix, Dice Masters, Star Trek: Attack Wing and event news from Wizkids...

Greetings WizKids Fans,


WizKids is pleased to announce an all-new dice rolling game, Dice Stars. From the designers who brought you Mr. Jack, Dice Town, Cyclades and many others, Bruno Cathala and Ludovic Maublanc are mixing fun with strategy in this new dice game that is sure to exceed your expectations with flying colors.

Players will take turns drawing and rolling 1 to 3
dice. Use your roll to collect dice of the same color or value to strategically fill in your score sheet and win the most points. Watch out for stars: these faces can be powerful multipliers but they come with great risk. When you fill out the special line of stars, make sure you complete the line to get double points: if you don’t finish it, you’ll score zero!

WizKids is pleased to announce the upcoming release of Burke’s Gambit. Designed by Rob Yates, Burke’s Gambit is a game of bluffing and social deduction, and will release in stores this December.

Players will be speeding through space on Burke’s Gambit, a rugged company freighter on an extremely important mission. Your crew has been tasked with finding powerful alien technology, but what you find instead is something unexpected… a dangerous parasitic organism somehow made its way into the ship and inside the body of one of your crew members.
